Put on your cleats and head out onto the field for some soccer action in Mattel's International Soccer for the Atari 2600.
The game contains two equally matched teams -- one yellow and one blue, each with four players and no goalie. Each player controls one player on their team, with the computer controlling the other three.
A game is divided into two simulated 45-minute periods, with the teams switching sides after halftime. There are no penalties, throw-ins, out of bounds, corner kicks or overtime. Only one game option is available and the difficulty switches don't affect gameplay.
One-third of the screen is visible at any given time during gameplay; as players move, the display scrolls to show the rest of the field.
International Soccer is for two players only, as there is no option for a CPU-controlled team.
